    Palin should be arrested.

    I’ll settle for a little self-restraint.

    Campaign funds end up in media hands.

    We as a country are not mature enough to possess firearms. How many more children must die before yahoos with a small bleeep realize they don’t really need a deadly weapon to prove themselves.

    Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle should both be brought in for questioning. If anyone else made the same threats these two have, they would already be in jail

    As a Pennsylvanian (and a liberal), I think Brady’s bill is a bad idea. We don’t need laws against speech, we need the Palins, Becks, Limbaughs, and Angles of the world to maybe stop and think before they speak.

    That said, if this had been a school shooting and a student had drawn a map of the school with crosshairs all over it, that student would be in custody right now.

    C.A. Brobst, on what charges? I notice that you seem to advocate arresting Palin for political rhetoric so logically we can arrest any political figure or pundit for their words just so long as we can abstractly link it to any crime.

    Another note; this crime was committed by a single person who thought it would be a good idea. Who knows the thought process of a crazy person. If it makes you feel better to use the deaths of innocent people to advance your political ideology then by all means sink to that level. That statement goes out to all sides, but sadly it will only have an impact on those still capable of feeling shame for acting like a ghoul.

    Palin is not guilty of any crime (relevant to this matter*). It’s embarrassing to see lefties say such things.

    C. Shea. Surely you jest, that bunch hasn’t had a thought to stop for. Like the monkey toy of old, they just make a constant clashing sound unless you hit them atop their heads then they snarl and go back to clashing.

    fennec: a verbal threat where the person has the ability to carry it out is assault- punishable, and basically sufficient.

    The UCMJ prior to a verbal “summary” of Rumsfeld’s incompetence by an Admiral did not include “insulting or countermanding” the Secretary of Defense as it did the CIC. Rummy go upset and they changed the UCMJ to include the Secretary as “criticism free”– so maybe hurt feelings is a more serious issue than attempted assassinations?

    Brobst, you REALLY need to chill out

    Shea has a good point.

    Shea has an excellent point. It was quite ironic to watch the news clips of Giffords being interviewed months ago on her reaction to being targeted on Palin’s gunsight map. This was right after her D.C. and district office had been trashed. Gifford suggested we tone down the rhetoric.

    to the toon: I don’t think we need any new laws either, including a suggested law making it a crime to have a gun within 1,000 yards of an elected official. I don’t really want a gun within 1,000 yards of ME!

    But it would be typical of Congress to try to, once again, differentiate itself from the people it claims to represent.
